  • Business Card Box and Holder No. 2

    Here my second business card box and holder. I used Lace wood for this one, This was the first time I used Lace wood, it's a strange wood to cut hard to cut in some area's but really easy in others. It really looks looks good. I used 3 coats of shellac as a finish. This one should be Evelyn's I have a request for another one. I think I'll use Red Oak for that one. Any and all comments are welcome.

        Thanks Mike and Jim. If your taking about the base in the second picture it's the base and it's glued to the section above it which is the inner box. To get size right I cut it oversize put a space inside the outer box this will allow the inner box to sit above the outer box. I apply glue to the inner box, set the base on to the spacing is even all around clamp and let dry. Then I set outer box on the inner box and draw a line on the base of the lower box and cut the base to size using the line as a guide and sand it smooth.

            That's some really unique looking wood, and the reddish color is very striking -- the pattern of the wood really gives the project some "attitude". I hope Evelyn can actually have this one!

                I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

                We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
